Bible Reading: Matthew 25:14-30
Tuesday 7 July 2020 © The Upper Room.
God has given each one of us special talents (skills). He wants us to use these talents to serve Him. But sometimes we may be scared to use our talents.
In our Bible Reading today, Jesus told a story about a master who gave money to his servants. This money is like the talents that God gives to us. One servant did not use the money that his master had given him. Why? The servant said, “I was afraid. I went and hid your money in the ground. Here is the one bag of money you gave me” (verse 25). The master called this servant “bad” and “lazy.”
Think about the talents that God has given you. Talk to God about your talents. With His help, you will learn to use your talents in the way He planned. Then you will honour God and help His kingdom (the church) grow.
So don’t be afraid to use your talents for God. He will help you not be scared.
Start today using your talents to serve Him. —GT
1 Corinthians 12:4-5 “There are different kinds of spiritual gifts; but they are all from the same Spirit. There are different ways to serve; but all these ways are from the same Lord.”
PRAYER: God, help me to find my talents and use them to honour You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
